Regardless of what the serviceman said, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, especially when you're talking about abnormal colors. If you already have contacted Sony, you just might need to contact them again to speak with a different customer rep. You want them to agree to have a Sony repair rep look at your camera.
They should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Pictures unclear

1. Indoor photographs will not come out well unless there is good lighting in the room.

2. This camera has very old technology and is very cheap. It does not have auto focus. It can only focus to two positions: Macro for less that 6 feet and Distant for everything else. Use the focus ring at the front to switch between these two positions.

3. The camera is very slow in recording the image so you must hold it very steady while it takes the shot.

Good luck.

Card shows read error in Preview Mode

Let's try a couple of easy things first. Remove the card and clean the contacts with a soft cloth. Next, try connecting the camera to computer, and "right-click" on the camera icon. Go to "properties", "tools" and perform an error check on the card. Open the card and see if there are any files or folders that shouldn't be there. Delete them if there are any. If you absolutely need to recover the images, you may need to try image recovery software. Some are free downloads and vary in effectiveness. If the images are not super valuable, you should be able to format the card in the camera, which will wipe out all data, both good and bad. The card should then be useable, and void of any images. Good luck.

Message on LCD screen

'No Picture' usually means just that. There are no images in the memory. So go take some pictures. Check you have the control to the picture taking mode and not the Viewing mode Give the manual a good read.

No picture on my LCD

When in the taking mode- this SLR will not show an image as other cameras- because the mirror is down for the reflex view finder- this is normal for this type of camera although I understand there is a make/model that gets around this - but it is not the E-v 500 just like my E-v 300

Distorted color on image

You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear

One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
